Ald. McMenamin: Some First Responders Overpaid


A Springfield alderman says some police and firefighters are simply overpaid… and he thinks the city needs to re-evaluate its entire pay structure.

 

But Ward 7’s Joe McMenamin thinks any action is unlikely in the short term.

 

Just days after he proposed a wage freeze for city workers, McMenamin now says he’s abandoning the idea for now, because he says it will require a different City Council… and different leadership in the mayor’s office… to get anything done.

 

McMenamin says the city needs to spend less on salaries so that it can put more money toward its unfunded police and fire pension liability.
